Overpopulation is bad for sales. People aren't fond of my gut instinct threads so I'm going to prove it with mathematics. Lets say we live in a society. And the world has only 1 million people. Lets say only 0.05% of the population makes games. And on average they make 1 game a year. That means there is exactly 500 games in the entire world. The human brain can eventually browse through 500 games in a year. Players can pick the game exactly that fits to them, and there is no issue of great games being buried under a sea of mediocre titles. Players will naturally find great games easily. Now imagine the population is 100 million. That means 50,000 games a year. 1 consumer will not have enough time to browse every game that's made. Great games may fall through the void. The only games they will play are games that are advertised to them in their face. The game industry will become corrupt and rigged, where rich just get more rich and poor get poorer. 10 billion people same deal, but even worse.
